Trans Fatty Acids

Also known as: trans fats

Trans Fatty Acids are saturated fats produced from vegetable and animal oils. They are hydrogenated oils that are semi-solid at room temperature with low melting points. They have extended shelf-lives and are used in processed foods as stabilizers. Animal oil-based trans fats have been under scrutiny due to harmful reactions.

Trans fats are found in prepackaged snacks of all kinds, including chips, cookies, baked goods, frozen foods, cookies, and many more.
